ZURICH, Nov. 28, 2012
ZURICH, Nov. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/-- Trina Solar Limited (NYSE:TSL)
("Trina Solar" or the "Company"), a leading integrated manufacturer of solar
photovoltaic (PV) products, today announced the donation of solar modules to
three health care centres in Malawi servicing over 85,000 people. Together
with partner Innovation: Africa, Trina Solar will make clean energy available
to two remote medical centres and a community-based organization offering
HIV/AIDS support, vocational training, adult education, orphan care and more.
In combination with a storage system, these solar modules will allow all three
facilities to offer care and services to their communities at night and other
conditions of low visibility.
Today, over 1.3 billion people live without electricity. Nearly 600 million of
those people live in Africa. Trina Solar, Innovation: Africa and shipper
Schenker International B.V. have joined forces to bring electricity into these
communities in Malawi.
The Innovation: Africa partnership began in May 2011, when Trina Solar
provided the solar modules for the installation of solar energy systems at
Visezi Medical Clinic in the Bagamoyo District of Tanzania. The Visezi Medical
Clinic serves a community of 2,770 people but until last year, they had no way
to offer proper medical care at night. Women gave birth in rooms heavy with
kerosene fumes, and doctors could often barely see the patients they were
With a solar energy system, Visezi Medical Clinic can now offer 24-hour care
in sanitary, well-lit conditions.
"We are pleased to support local communities in need with our technology,"
said Ben Hill, Head of Trina Solar Europe. "Looking forward, our aim is to
continue to bring solar power to improve the quality of life of people who
live without access to electricity."
Sivan Ya'ari, Founder and President of Innovation: Africa explained, "Trina
Solar has been an ideal partner in our work to uplift African communities.
With their solar panel donations, we are able to spend our resources where
they are needed most: identifying communities without energy and working with
them to build sustainable solar projects. We have ambitious goals, and with
Trina's support, we hope to double our impact in the next year."
